    I understand the Lumia 640 XL
    will hit at&t but is it an exclusive? Will Verizon get it? Please Microsoft no more exclusives.

      I really doubt Verizon will get this phone. The world uses GSM. Unless Verizon agrees to buy a large volume there is no reason to make a CDMA version just for Verizon.

        The same could have been said about the Icon or any Windows phone on Verizon. New phones are starting to be built as world phones suggesting the chip cost is minimal. I bet after spending the money to build a GSM phone the additional engineering costs to convert to cdma is minimal. Add to that the fact that LTE bandwidths are all different among US carriers. This hasn’t stopped building phones for each one.

          The Icon makes my point. Verizon only sold it for about 6 months and most likely sold a small volume. It is doubtful that the volume sold by Verizon justified the effort by Nokia / Microsoft. Verizon was also very slow to update the Icon angering lots of Icon owners.

          Why would Microsoft want to continue to do business with Verizon when it is clear that Verizon is not interested in supporting the Windows Phone platform? Verizon may be the largest carrier in the USA, but they are a small percentage of the global market.

            Based on your logic Microsoft should not be in the US market. Verizon is not that different in size as at&t. Based on the global market should the Windows phone skip the US? Of course not. Microsoft has to continue with Verizon and the others. Verizon was on time with this latest rom update. I am not sure we will know the complete reason for the previous delays. There have been more than a few thoughts on the matter. If part of the reason was a bad partnership then you repair it. You don’t walk away.

            • Jason

              I would say Microsoft is barely in the US market. Right now they are focused on bringing entry level phones to the developing world. They want people’s first smartphone to be a Windows Phone and for people to get used to Microsoft’s ecosystem instead of Google’s or Apples.
